Dairy, Egg, Soy and Peanut/Tree Nut Free Cinnamon Buns

Happy 13th Birthday Matthew!

Saturday was all about Matthew Day…he is now officially a teenager…look out world!

It has been tradition in our family, for the birthday boy to choose the meals of the day.

Matthew had originally requested his favourite breakfast…French Toast. However, as he had a sleepover Friday night and there were 6 boys to feed, one of which has a dairy and egg allergy (my eldest son), I switched up his breakfast choice to another favourite of his…Dairy, Egg, Soy and Peanut/Tree Nut Free Cinnamon Buns.

The look on his face was priceless when he emerged from the basement (man cave) to the smell of the Cinnamon Buns baking in the oven… “Am I smelling Cinnamon Buns?”

I first made Dairy, Egg, Soy and Peanut/Tree Nut Free Cinnamon Buns in 2009. The boys had been begging me to adapt a recipe for the ooey gooey treat. Their friends were invited to taste test my creation. The verdict was unanimous…two thumbs up!

My Dairy, Egg, Soy and Peanut/Tree Nut Free Cinnamon Buns are reserved for special occasions…they are not an everyday treat…more of a once in a while indulgence!

Matthew’s 13th Birthday was certainly the perfect occasion.

The recipe for Dairy, Egg, Soy and Peanut/Tree Nut Free Cinnamon Buns is adapted from the Black and Decker All-In-One Deluxe recipe booklet. (from my first Bread Maker)

Cut roll into twelve equal pieces. (I like to cut roll in half and then divide each half into 6 equal pieces)

Drizzle with a mixture of icing sugar and pure vanilla with water. (Sorry, I just winged this part. Approximately, 1 1/2 cups of icing sugar with 1/2-1 tsp of pure vanilla and add water until you get a drizzly texture.)
Enjoy while still warm!

Tip 1: Personally, I love my Cinnamon Buns to have raisins or dried cranberries tucked inside. As these were more for the kids, I refrained.

Tip 2: Freezing them individually makes for a great reheat treat.

Matthew requested Pulled Pork Sandwiches with my fresh buns for his birthday dinner. (Michael also requested this recipe for his birthday dinner get together with his buddies…very popular recipe in our house!)

Martha Stewart’s Everyday Food Magazine slow cooker recipe is our all time favourite. I love it because it is so easy to put together in the morning, leaving it to braise all day for a delicious supper at the end of the day.

The combined aroma of Pulled Pork and freshly made buns teased us all day!

  2. Susan – Absolutely loved this post! Beautiful pictures and an engaging write-up. Wishing good health and happiness to Matthew always!

    • Hi Anu! Saturday was a busy birthday extravaganza for Matthew! I had so much fun putting it all together for him. Sometimes, I feel that his peanut/tree nut allergy gets over looked compared to Michael’s list of food allergies. Matthew is such a trouper! I will certainly pass along your good wishes to him. Thank you for all your comments! ~ Susan H.

    • Matthew was truly spoiled with all his favourite dishes! Michael and friends enjoyed sharing them with him! I wasn’t left with one Cinnamon Bun to freeze for a later treat!

  3. Thank you so much for this recipe! My grandson has lactose, peanut and egg allergies so this is exactly what I was looking for!

Shall we discuss?
